Lights On/Off Schedule

To help discourage very late-night traffic, we are asking everyone coordinate the “lights on / lights off” schedule as follows:

  • Lights On: Starting at 6pm
  • Lights Off: Weekdays: 10pm; Weekends: 11pm

Please - NO Street Parking

Due to the large influx of ‘Nite of Lites’ visitor traffic, everyone’s assistance is needed to help keep the traffic flow moving by NOT parking any vehicles on the street or in cul-de-sacs during ‘Nite of Lites’ evenings.

  • Additionally, vehicles parked in the streets slow emergency vehicles needed by yourself and your neighbors.
  • We also don’t want to see anyone’s vehicle accidently damaged as visiting guests navigate the traffic while viewing the great ‘Nite of Lites’ decorations.
  • Everyone’s kind assistance and neighborly thoughtfulness is most appreciated.

Precinct 4 Constable Patrol

Precinct 4 Constables are scheduled to provide additional security and traffic control during ‘Nite of Lites’.

  • Please keep their 24-hour Dispatch number (281-376-3472) in your phone’s contact list, should you need assistance.
